Mick Twister has been tweeting the daily news in limerick form for the past three years. And now he's reflected the whole of human history in 100 limericks.

There Was An Old Geezer Called Caesar is a wonderfully witty book covering everything from the Big Bang to Cleopatra, Einstein, the invention of the atom bomb and many more.

With each page containing a catchy limerick and short description of the historical events, this brilliantly entertaining book is an ideal way to brush up on those things you feel you ought to know.

As well as giving away 50 copies of the book we're also running a competition to find the best limerick about Mumsnet starting with the line:

A website frequented by mums...

The finest limerick will net its author a brilliant bundle of books from Anova Books Group, including crafts, cooking and children's books, worth £100.

Apply for a copy and post your limerick on the discussion thread and we'll announce the winner at the end of October.
